Since its introduction as the pioneer fluoroelastomer, FKM fluorocarbon has helped establish a new standard of performance for today's advanced fuel and engine systems. Now it is even more effective against extremes of heat, chemicals, fuel mixtures and fuel additives because it is an essential element for meeting today's and tomorrow's more stringent requirements.

FKM is the polymer of choice for fuel seals, head and intake manifold gaskets, quick-connect o-rings, fuel injection seals of all descriptions, caulks, and advanced fuel hose components.

In an era of longer warrantees, hotter engines, more aggressive lubricants and stricter environmental regulations pushing traditional elastomers to their limit, designers routinely look to FKM fluorocarbon to replace less thermally and chemically-stable materials.

From caulks to compounds, there is a FKM product and grade for every need. No wonder FKM fluorocarbon remains the most requested and specified fluoroelastomer for tough automotive sealing applications.
